TURTLES

Sea turtles are endangered species facing, mainly, trash left on the beach and on the riverbeds that are later washes to the sea. All of these factors represent obstacles for the turtles to overcome and to grow into adulthood.
El Cid Resorts is aware of the hard situation and importance to promote the conservation of sea turtles, that’s why guests at any of the El Cid hotels in Mazatlán can be involved in helping the sea turtle conservation team led by El Cid and the Mazatlán Aquarium.
El Cid Castilla Beach Hotel is the location for this activity. Efforts made by El Cid and the Mazatlán Aquarium have increased the survival rate of this endangered species by 900%, where vacationists and locals have liberated 384,000 turtles.
